For public library clerk Diane Anderson, reading romance novels is far easier than attracting a flesh-and-blood man of her own. It seems she's too voluptuous in the wrong places to attract the kind of black man her mama requires as a son-in-law - and just exotic enough to attract the kind of white man her mama forbids. But there's something special about the lost-looking guy who comes into the library one afternoon. When novelist Jack reveals to Diane that she is his muse, she cannot help but being intrigued. And pretty soon, she's knocking down the wall he's built around himself.
